- OUR PATRON | PolishClubofAtlanta
Our patron Kazimierz Pułaski Our patron is Kazimierz Pulaski: Polish-born independence fighter, who distinguished himself in battles for the independence of Poland and the United States of America. Kazimierz Pułaski in Poland was born on in the family home of the Pulaski family. The impressive manor house is no longer there, but the closest address is currently Nowy Swiat 53, on the corner Warecka Street. Kazimierz Pułaski March 1754 Pulaski was one of the leaders of the alliance of Polish nobility aimed at fighting for Polish independence and the Catholic church, and against Russia and the new King Stanisław August Poniatowski supported by Russia (Konfederacja Barska, established on 29 February 1768 in Bar, currently in Ukraine). From 1768 to 1772 he was instrumental in forcing the Russian army to withdraw after the battles near Częstochowa. On 16 January 1771 King Stanisław August Poniatowski, who later accused those involved in the ‘Konfederacja Barska’ of attempting to kill him, was kidnapped. On 3 November 1771 , after the Alliance was dissolved, Kazimierz Pułaski left Poland. In 1772 he was accused of being a participant in the attempt to kidnap the King, and in absentia sentenced to death. The sentence was annuled in 1792. On 7 June 1773 Kazimierz Pułaski in America arrived in America and in August he joined George Washington’s army. 23 July 1977 he took part in the first battle against England – near Brandywine river – where he saved the life of General George Washington by securing his withdrawal. On 11 September 1777 he became General in the Continental Army. On 15 September 1777 he fought the battle of Germantown. On 3 October 1777 he received the consent of Congress to establish the Pulaski Cavalry Legion. On 28 March 1778 the Pulaski Cavalry Legion fought against the English army in Charleston, SC. Starting on 8 May 1779 roku wiadomość o śmierci Pułaskiego dotarła do Generała Jerzego Waszyngtona, który stacjonował w Moore House w West Point. W rozkazie z tego dnia napisal on: „na hasło: Pułaski, ma być odzew: Polska”. 17 listopada 1779 Pulaski was hit by a bullet during the battle of Savannah and died two days later. On 9 October 1779
